alangrifbang: Of course he never owned any! When the share price rises long wirh opodio he will be gone,you have these people on every site,just go with the flow the bods know what they are up to,good luck
kalkaar: i'd be surprised if the major shareholders allowed this to go ahead.. not sure any renegotiation would go down well with danal shareholders neither.. share price already off a cliff from 140p.. many investors have been burned are done with BOKU
kalkaar: "new customers" and an "accelerated" move into the Identity field.. hardly enough justification for the price being paid.. which Edison actually quote closer to $100m!! and then they say the share price reaction is "overdone" ?!
kalkaar: deferred consideration of $62m will be payable should Danal achieve Revenue greater than $10m (from it's current $5m) in 2019. Assume that will be achievable and if the share price is below 120p then the number of shares issued will be calculated using the minimum price of 120p i.e. 51.67m shares which as you say is better than issuing shares at say the current price of 75p because that would mean more shares in issue and greater dilution. In the unlikely event BOKU share price was above 170p then the conversion will result in Danal shareholders getting 36.5m shares.. so for Danal shareholders the conversion at 120p is more beneficial. for BOKU shareholders the higher the share price the less dilution. as against the current share price the 120p conversion looks favourable could result in a 34% increase in shares in issue if conversion took place on the worst case scenario for BOKU shareholders (51.7m + 26.7m) / 224m the cash conversion is only an option for the BOKU board, cannot imagine they are going to want to pay that deferred consideration of $62m in cash. A lot to pay for a company that had revenue of only $5m but there may have been other interested parties and the strategic fit and technology being acquired must have been compelling.. not to mention the saved investment costs in bringing their own product to market.. noteworthy also that the CEO says integration would only "modestly add to costs."
kalkaar: probably explains why the share price has fallen so much without so much of a bounce of late.. and now lots more bailing on the news of the acquisition. Understandable to have concern when an acquisition is made which is financed by the issuing of a bucket load of shares (26m in the first instance) but I think those selling are missing a trick here without due consideration. Boku has just bought "The World's Leading Mobile Identity Platform" the potential here is phenomenal when you consider this segment of the market is still in its infancy and set for an explosion in growth.. having a global identity offering will be highly attractive for getting customers and sign-ups. Danal, Inc. is a privately held US company whose investors include Discover Financial Services, Morgenthaler Group, Orange Telecom, Bangkok Bank and Experian. looking at Danal's website you will see they have just secured a deal across the 4 MNO's for the mobile identity product here in the UK.. so there is lots of logic as to why BOKU are making the purchase. They are straight off the ground and now have saved a number of years had they gone down the road of developing and marketing their own offering. Integration and growth will now be the key. Boku's strategy will pay dividends.. the question is when, not if.. could see the likes of EXPN (market cap £16bn+) buying BOKU and it would be a drop in the ocean for them and a perfect strategic fit too. As the CEO acknowledges "Mobile commerce is booming.." and it's clear what their strategy is, " build the world leader in this emerging space." even if the share price bounces can see BOKU getting taken over.. ultimately that has to be the objective for all shareholders and more so if the value of the company languishes at these levels next year
superhotchilli: The analysis should be kept simple. Currently, Boku are only adding clients and increasing customer base. As long as this continues, profits and a rise in share price will continue. I will evaluate my position if this changes but I cannot see their client base decreasing at the moment.
kalkaar: redbarge, you really think Old Mutual (and others) would put in something in the region of £35m (at 160p placing price) for a laugh? shares have shifted out of the hands of existing investors and directly into the hands of new investors.. none of these shares have hit the market. until something fundamental changes the share price pulling back (after the huge rise), on little volume, is of little concern as far as i'm concerned.
kalkaar: bloody hell that was fast.. obviously they had sounded out investors beforehand.. very impressive nonetheless! Stops the lingering uncertainty casting a shadow over the share price. so they wanted to place a minimum of 20m shares and they managed to place 25m. getting 160p for the lot does not mean existing shareholders are diluted in anyway.. nor will it mean a whole tranche of shares soon to be flooded in the marketplace What it does show is that there was an appetite to take them on in the market albeit at a small discount. We're not talking about new shares going to small investors.. 25m shares representing 11% of the equity is a big chunk to place.. the new investors will want to have seen evidence of the merits for the investment case before parting with their money.. my glass is half full.. nothing changed in my opinion. Still a compelling investment. gla dyor.
amt: simplesimon I think Bango share price will go up buts its nothing to do with the original BOKU IP owners switching. They are the sort of investors involved in start ups so they work by funding from the start and then look for an exit once the business is fully established. It's as simple as that. I think BOKU share price will move sideways at around the 160p value in the short term. So we now know what value the big investors put on BOKU at its present time and happy with 1.60.
kalkaar: seems enough happy to jump on the bandwagon take a few pennies profit, jump off only to see it surprise on the upside moves.. wasn't expecting the usual huge discreet buys over August but will be keeping an eye out for them when the big boys return from their breaks.Already had guidance confirmed in the trading update so hopefully we'll get some further update on the ID product launch, new clients, current metrics and prospects for the immediate future..With so many institutional backers in BOKU can't imagine their exit being to sell into an junior market where liquidity is likely to be a big issue.. begs the question how do they plan to exit.. not saying this will happen here but wouldn't be surprised to see such a quality Fintech company such as BOKU bought out by other gargantuan players looking to strengthen their market position in what is likely to be a very lucrative growth area for several years yet.Until such time or to get to that stage and whilst still being the "scale player" they could look to buy out their smaller competitors or make strategic acquisitions once they've got enough free cash flow.. I know the latter had been touched upon by the CEO.. Whichever route they take, given the pedigree and calibre of the CEO, John Prideaux, i would be compelled to stick around to see where BOKU is in 2019..Hoping for a continued positive statement (current and future) and the share price will look after itself even after the run up they've had.As always, all imho and one should always dyor.
